The Fox Sports app is a handy app for any sports fan. Not only does the app stream national games on FS1, FS2, FOX Deportes, Big Ten Network, and FOX Soccer Plus, but it is also the overflow channel for these networks. Therefore, if FS1 has the right to air four games on a given night, one may air on FS1, but all four games are streaming on The Fox Sports App. This is very handy for sports like college basketball, where several games can air on a given night. To top it off, The Fox Sports App can stream live sports in 4K HD video resolution.
To watch a game through the Fox Sports app, you need a TV provider with Fox Sports channels. If you don’t have one, you can use a free trial for any of the services below:
- DIRECTV STREAM – offers a 5-day Free Trial
- Fubo TV – Offers a 1-week free trial
- YouTube TV – offers a 1-week free trial
These free trials are no-risk, and if you cancel before the free trial, you will not be charged for the first month of service.
